Look for various home decor, cushion covers, accessories, recycled objects, cotton blankets, clothing, and woven bamboo pieces.

  • Beautiful products sourced ethically from a variety of villages. Friendly owner and staff.
  • Beautifully woven textiles sold fair trade. Also had a reusable water bottle station for free fill up as part of a city wide initiative to reduce plastic waste.
  • Enjoyed a coffee here. Very nice.
  • Stopped in for turmeric tea.
  • Wonderful textiles and clothing. We first met them when planning a boat trip up the river and have some worked with them to visit remote villages where textiles are made. Beautiful quality whole retaining the original style of the villages.
